Yeah, I don't know where the heck these guys get ideas for icons, I think they do a google>search>finger tap "oh hey a finger print image, that works!"

Zerbra print sounds way more cohesive with the word "Safari" than a compass. The problem with a Compass is you have to create the relation in your head by realizing you would use a Compass to guide you on a Safari.

But a Zebra is a much easier correlation because we are more familiar with what we would expect to see whilst on a Safari than actually going on one and which tools to use, because quite honestly it's a dead form of travel.

LoLs.

Looking forward to your Zebra theme, you've got a good eye for color combinations which are new to me.

you talkin to me about the eye for colors? or azteka? lol. i like colors that compliment. like LITERALLY comliment. like opposite eachother on the color wheel. you know? like red and green are complimentary. as are blue and orange. and yellow and purple. although i don't like purple. so i just use yellow with whatever. lol i wish i could find and adequate zebra print pic. like maybe of just a zebra skin rug. you know. something with texture. not just black and white stripes that are done with PAINT program.

Yeah I was talkin to you, lol.

I hear ya on the color theory, mine combinations are a little less on the extreme ends of the wheel, but I'm getting there. The POP factor is just undeniable when you have two great complimentary colors next to each other. Oh and purple ain't so bad, it looks nice next to the right shade of green, very sophisticated like.

As for the Zebra print, have you tried looking on http://www.photos.com ? I have an account there for my businesss, if you find a zebra pattern you like I can download it for you and email it. I pay a premium for unlimited downloads there so I feel like I'm blowing money if I don't use it. Just send me a PM with the link to the image u want and I'll send ya a reply with a download link.

Very cool use for the 4th row like that, the thought didn't even cross my mind. Now I can see it has a purpose :)

i like the zebra background. but it needed SOMETHING in the middle just to set it off. i kinda like the "i" but i'm afraid it may be too simple.

The Green "i" icon looks pretty sharp, nice colors.

The other two seem a little blurry on my screen compared to the first green one. Be cool if that monkey was holding an iPhone, lol!

awsome use of the 4th row.. this is what i came up with....





(with help of others)
Take that bottom theme and put it on a plate and serve it up because it looks done! Good balance and what not, only thing left is tinting your icons to the team colors to really seal the deal.

haha! yeah that would be neat! lol
What may I ask are you using for your icon master file?

It looks a little smaller than what I'm used to seeing. It's been such a roller coaster ride trying to find the correct dimensions but I think I've finally gotten it, 59x60, with 1 blank pixel space on the left and right sides of the icon.

I haven't seen anyone else make icons besides yourself, so I've held off on posting my icon template psd file. I'll post it if you're interested.
